Nor’eastern 2017


So today in Upstate NY we had a blizzard come through. If being stuck at home isn’t bad enough trap me in a house with my mom and step dad.

We all survived with the exception of a porcelain figurine or two.  This storm has led me to another day of downsizing. I have gone through all of my clothing and I have officially gotten down to a full closet and replacing my dresser with a cube storage unit from Walmart. I am in love with it.

I also moved my bedroom around and downsized the amount of space I take up. Instead of the whole in-law apartment I now only have the bedroom and half bath. The living room area has become a sort of office for my thirty-one gifts business but that’s only because I haven’t downsized the totes and office supplies yet.

This year is the first time I have stuck with  my New Year, New Me crap for more than a few weeks. I may have finally found attainable goals for once. As I sit here setting up an online, week long, 31 Facebook Party I see a few things I can get rid of.

And instead of asking if I’ll need these items in the next few decades I’m going to trust my gut and get rid of them. I am finally learning to trust my butterflies!
